Animal Awareness Day at Universiti Malaya (18th March 2014)

mini-Animal Awareness Day

Today’s the day!


The ever-helpful Universiti Malaya students were on hand to help us.


Thank you very much for giving us this opportunity to share with the audience about what One-Street CNRM is all about.


Dr Vellayan telling the audience about exotic pets, which species can be neutered and which should not be. It was really interesting to note that for some species, only the males should be neutered while for some, only the females. And for some, though they are kept as exotic pets, they should not be neutered because we want them to breed so that their species will propagate.

It was also interesting that Dr Vellayan makes the owners take an oath that they will look after and safeguard the wellbeing of their exotic pets and that should the owners pass away, they must have already made plans for someone else to look after the neutered exotic pets. This is to ensure that the neutered exotic animals will not be abandoned.


Dr Suresh emphasizing the need for the awareness of kindness to animals to spread far and wide. He said that the various groups of people must get together to consolidate efforts and brainstorm on how the awareness can be extended further.

Koo brought four ginger siblings and two of the females were adopted!

These two are the males. This family consisting of the mother and 5 kittens were abandoned when their owner moved away. So far, three have been adopted. These two are left. If you are interested to adopt them, please contact Koo at
